I was not sure if I should be joining this forum but a consultant rheumatologist has prescibed hydroxychloroquine for me to see if it assists in dealing with symptoms of:
-joint stiffness in both hands wrists knees neck
-sometimes stiffness in both feet and occasionally thumbs (which I find especially uncomfortable).
There is still no firm diagnosis for RA (blood tests not being conclusive and I apparently have OA in some joints anyway, she says) but I did respond positively to a general steroid injection so there probably is "some form of inflammatory illness there".
Hopefully, I will learn more by reading the posts from the members here.
Anyway,good luck to you all.
